Is it warm or cold outside? Does the party have a theme? Why are you throwing a party? Is it casual or a little dressy?

Well for the kids(and possibly some adults) there is these awesome pizza croissant things I found on pinterest. SO and I love them :oops:
All you need are croissants, string cheese, and pepperonis. I'm pretty sure you just cook them as the instructions say on the croissants.
Unless you're looking for something healthy :lol:

Cheese coneys or spaghetti are easy to make in bulk.

Cold. Snow is on the ground as of yesterday. My son turned 2 on the 5th so I'm throwing his party this weekend. It's casual! The theme is elmo for my son.

Chili is a good idea. I like to make Sloppy Joes in the crock pot. It's so easy and almost everyone likes them. Sides are pretty easy to think up with them too.

If u do chili, my mom has an easy stove top recipe. She uses 1 pound of browned hamburger, 1 can of tomato soup, 1 can of chili beans, and 1 pack of chili seasoning. Cook for about 40 minutes.



Edit: you can always double/triple, etc the recipe and u could look up crockpot recipes if itd be easier on you to use the crockpot.

I love Sloppy Joes. I never made it in the crock pot though. Just on the stove top. I was also thinking of making pulled pork in the crock pot since it is something I have made before and know it will taste good. But I wasnt really sure if pulled pork was a good idea/what to make with it besides potato salad. But potato salad is more for the summer right? I am clearly overthinking this whole cooking thing lol. I just want to make sure everyone likes the food and eats.

Thanks. That sounds super easy. Do you think I can use that recipe but in the crock pot?

What could I make to go with the chilli?



Sorry everyone, I am super new to cooking and not really confident in making meals yet! Still learning.
